The “Do nothing” option is missing from the lid close action

    The “Do nothing” option is missing from the lid close action

    Question

    Why is the “Do nothing” missing from the "When I close the lid menu list of the Windows 8 Power" options?

    Answer

    This is by design on the VAIO models listed below that are running original VAIO Windows 8 build.

    Reason

    The air exhaust vents are located between the LCD hinges and, if the LCD lid is closed while the notebook keeps running, there is a risk of obstructing airflow and reducing cooling efficiency.
